As the only pro ball player around here (well, OK, it was less than $50, but I was paid to play...once...ahem), and as a member of the historic 2 on 2 championship team (McGlone & Tell over Dire and HFlow), I can say that the Warriors (sorry, no one that has followed the Warriors since 1967 calls them the "dubs"...ugh) are too much of a good thing (w Durant they simply accentuate what they already do: shoot 3' plan B, as many would say).

Sorry, don't call me a "hater"...

One of the great names the press ever bestowed was on a Warrior
Joe Barely Cares,
( traded with a Sleepy for a Sampson, no less)

As a kid my friends and I had the jones and would drive all over LI to play in 3 on 3 games, winner keeps the court.
Praise Mrs. Gatewood and her Pinto for driving us around.

I played in Commack Arena on a night Rick Barry played for the Nets. You had to walk over the ice from the hockey rink to get to the court. CYO stuff. Barry won a title almost by himself with SF.

Paid huh? I thought the Archive was amateur only. You might have to return some of your posts.

Interesting to me to see if they can maintain the movement when he's back. It's almost like they subconsciously allow him to dominate cause it's easier to win that way. I just wish he wasn't such a sensitive twit lately.

I turned pro back in the day but nobody noticed or cared. Does that count?

Going back that long with a team is special. Who were your favorite players along the way? Isn't it remarkable in this day and age that a team is playing in the same facility where they played in '66. (When the Dead were playing pizza parlors and strip joints up and down the peninsula.)

A pet theory I've been espousing the last few years has it that as part of playing in the City next year they will revert back to 'San Francisco Warriors.'

Oh yeah, I love that notion (back to SFW, the "city" and such of the old days). Perfect.

Rick Barry, w/out doubt...folks that only saw him in 75 when they won forget his 40+ pts per game in the 67 finals, a record ave that no one can top even in this day and age, I daresay...? Think so anyhow.

When we won in 75 it was all so unexpected, didn't win 50 games, etc., etc. Were supposed to lose to Bullets, and then swept them! That yr it happened so fast that it really didn't resonate w us heads...snuck up on us, and then another 40 yrs of disappointment, poor drafting, worse trades and so on...
